What can a business formation attorney do for you?
Our business formation attorneys are skilled at identifying potential legal landmines before they blow. And with our extensive knowledge of tax law, we’ll proactively ensure that your business formation strategy minimizes your tax burden and maximizes profits.
Many clients tend to seek legal assistance only when their business is facing a conflict, such as a legal dispute or expensive tax bills. However, you can often avoid future liability by forming (and operating) your business properly from the very beginning.
We’ll help you protect your business every step of the way by:
- Helping you choose the type of entity formation that will be most beneficial long-term
- Assess tax implications from the beginning
- Defining the roles and rights of all company owners
- Legally protecting your intellectual property
360° analysis of your business formation
Before you file any paperwork, it’s important to take a look at how your business formation will affect all aspects of your business for years to come.
Many of our business clients have partnered with us from the very beginning, which means we’ve seen—and solved—all manner of complex problems. Our extensive boardroom and courtroom experience has taught us what to watch for, from potential liabilities to tax-saving strategies.
Most importantly, we’re committed to providing personal, prompt attention to each and every client. With Gordon Law Group, you not only have experience on your side, but a dedicated, passionate team of business attorneys you can always rely on.
Prevent future issues with a strong business formation strategy
The legal aspects of business formation (what type of entity, who the managers are, and corporate formalities such as minutes, to name just a few) are often overlooked; many business owners simply don’t see the need to address these issues until a problem presents itself. But the fact of the matter is that many commercial disputes could be prevented by taking the necessary legal precautions beforehand.
Gordon Law Group is here to help any aspiring or current business owners tackle the legal aspects of business formation, ensuring that things run smoothly not just now, but far into the future. Let us handle the legal side so you can focus on running your business!
